I went to see The Hobbit film last night, and when I got home, I saw that Laura Dockrill had tweeted a link to this 11-minute animation. I found that watching it felt quite refreshing, going from a film claiming to be extra special because it has more frames per second, to one that has so few frames that it's very jerky. Stanley Pickle is made up of still photographs run together, very old-school, and it works well with its clockwork theme. Here you go, I thought you might like it:

Stanley Pickle was shot frame by frame on two sets and two locations, using a stills camera and Dragon Stop-Motion Software. Here's an interview with the director, Victoria Mather:
